Hosted by Ryan Bahia, Arsenal lead academy analyst James Krause joins the podcast alongside a returning Donald Barron, now at the University of Suffolk leading the sport performance analysis undergraduate degree course.

Split into two parts, the first half focuses on James’ role at Arsenal and the wider topic of innovation within performance analysis.

A common discussion point within this space is how people can break into the sports analysis industry. As well as sharing their own experiences, Donald draws on his thoughts as an employer (from his time at Norwich City) and how his life in the academic world has given a new perspective on this question.

James also draws on his experiences, along with sharing what he looks for when bringing in new staff to the club.
